We are all in this together

Image: Epsom Mental Health Festival, We\'re all in this together, 9th to 16th October 2021Epsom Mental Health and Well-Being Festival is held each October and comprises a week of free activities devoted to mental health and well-being.

This year the festival runs 9-16 October and the theme is ‘we’re all in this together’.

Although the issue is so often hidden and unexplored, there are few things in life more important than mental health. In every respect, mental health impacts on all our lives - it is a very rare person who does not know sadness and anxiety, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any one year and there is a sizeable group of people, some 2-3% of the population, whose lives are seriously affected by more severe and enduring mental health difficulties.

The festival comprises a packed schedule for you to choose from this year. There are talks and discussions on a wide range of topics from feeling anger and fear to nutrition,  immunity  and  mental  health.  There’s  even such diverse topics as Haiku  writing,  male grooming and line dancing! Come to one event, some or all. Come on your own or with family, friends, carers, whomever you would like in person or on-line.
